S.F. Examiner: Match Play at Harding Park is test of character

By Art Spander
San Francisco Examiner

San Francisco? Herb Caen’s cool, gray city of love? Rudyard Kipling’s town of mad people? Golf capital of the universe? Indeed, all of the above.

RealClearSports: A Masters to Be Remembered

By Art Spander

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The tales are about the azaleas and the green jacket and the difficulty in purchasing tickets. But what makes the Masters the Masters is the golf.

It's wide open, and wild scoring. It's golf the way the NBA plays basketball, dramatic and entertaining, where the best — Charl Schwartzel's historic four closing birdies Sunday — and the worst — Rory McIlroy's awful collapse — are as close as the next shot.
